In one of the most visible divorces in pop culture, Tiger Woods and Elin Nordegren, maturely respect the needs of their children through collaborative divorce, even while in the spotlight.
More often than not, traditional divorces are nasty, destructive and entrenched in deceptive legal maneuvering. For children, they are traumatic and lasting. Possibly the most appreciated outcome of collaborative divorce is the attention it devotes to your children’s wellness. In this process, your family lawyer will help you redefine the roles of each spouse so that you may peacefully move towards a two-family household, continuing to meet the needs of your children.
When children see their parents collaborate during a divorce, they fare just as well developmentally as parents that remain married. Working with your family attorney, specialists that will provide guidance, and the round table format, you can restructure your family in a way that makes sense, so that all parties may thrive as best as possible through the emotional pain of divorce.
As an added bonus, studies prove that parents who focus on protecting their children also have an easier time healing themselves.
